The Bible teaches us that Christians are those who believe in Christ. But what does true saving faith look like? Is it a blind leap in the dark? Is it knowing God? Does it translate into something that those around us can see? How much faith is enough?

Here Christian faith is examined from biblical, theological, and historical perspectives. Its aspects of intellect, relationship, trust, works, and maturity are explored to answer these questions and to show us what faith truly is.

Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.


"We live in a day when feelings have been pushed onto center stage while doctrine has been either demonized or, at best, relegated to some dusty corner. Guy Richard is out to change that and has done us a great service in lifting up one of the premier Bible words of all time—faith. In this short work he drills down into not only what faith really means, but also what it looks like in a life well lived. This booklet will strengthen the substance and foundation of your faith."
